Still here


Recommended Posts

As some of the local Indian riders in So. Cal. know my mother passed on 4-7, Since then I have been taking care of my father as he has alzhiemers, On this past Tues. He was taken by ambulance @ 04:00 to the hospital and almost died from a bleeding ulser which nobody knew he had. I am in the process of getting him moved into my house when he gets out of the hospital, So I haven't been on the forum much, It is good therapy to read all the funny $hit on here to keep the mind of the reality of life. I will be back in the saddle here in about a month.

 

Ride Hard and give it HELL Brothers

What they all said,  Hasbin.  That is indeed a bad month.  You are one helluva good human being standing up for Dad here.  Alzheimers is a horrible, horrible ailment.  My dad had it for the last 6 years of his life.  It was just freakin amazing how he couldn't remember anything recent at all including who I was at times.  BUT, he would talk about his war flying experiences of the 1940's and articulate them in incredibly great detail.  It is some freaky sh#t,  that alzheimers.  Sorry to hear about the situation with your parents.  You are a good man.

Hasbin - sorry to hear about your folks.

 

My father-in-law, a professional photographer, slowly lost his eyesight over his last few years while my mother-in-law gradually succumbed to Alzheimers.  They would go for a drive - she driving and describing the surroundings and he giving her directions from memory.  Amazing how they ever got from point A to point B - alive.

 

Since he died, she's been splitting her time between living with my brother-in-law and my sister-in-law, but sooner rather than later she will need a full-time care facility.  We knew how far the disease had progressed when we went back to MN to visit and as we came up the walk, she looked at my wife - her daughter - and said "Who's that cute gal with Bob?"  

 

On her birthday once, when she was turning 76, she asked me just how old she was.  "You're just 55 Mim!" I replied, and she broke into laughter knowing she wasn't 55 but not knowing exactly how old she really was.  Ironically, we had the same exchange (complete with laughter) several times that day and it was always as fresh as the first time.

 

It's a curse to have, to live and deal with, but the blessing is that she has taught us to live in the moment.  As trite as it sounds, it's true.

 

Our thoughts are with you.

That statement will bring a tear to ones eye.  Very nicely put, Tallrider.  

 

I just hope there is someone smart enough out there to document all of the electronic history that has occurred since the net went public back in 1993.  I think it is a shame that we've apparently become an undocumentable society, such, that generations that follow us will never know what went thru our minds when it is all said and done.  Very sad.  

 

Just thawin out from a cold 50 miler

I finally got my dad moved the 65 miles to my house on Sunday, He is doing much better, Yesterday I paid the nurse who lives next door to sit and watch TV with him so I could get some wind in my face. Let me tell you Brothers and Sisters it was the best therapy I could get. :outdoor:
